PERTH ( – Junior Rumble Resources has reported a maiden mineral resource estimate (MRE) of 94-million tonnes, grading 3.1% zinc and lead, at 4.1 g/t silver for its Earaheedy project, in Western Australia.

The project is estimated to contain 2.2-million tonnes of zinc, 0.6-million tonnes of lead and 12.6-milllion ounces of silver, representing one of the largest zinc sulphide discoveries globally in the last decade.

“This exceptional resource estimate is a major milestone for Rumble, confirming the Earaheedy project as one of the largest zinc sulphide discoveries globally over the last decade,” said Rumble MD Shane Sikora on Wednesday.

“Achieving a maiden Joint Ore Reserves Committee-compliant MRE of this size and significance in 24 months post-discovery is a tremendous effort by the technical team and especially Brett Keillor. Myself and the team are really excited as we believe we have only scratched the surface on the discovery front, and can’t wait to see the drill rigs turning again next month.”

Rumble said in a statement on Wednesday that there remained the potential for significant resource growth in the future, with three deposits remaining open downdip and along strike, with less than 35% of the targeted 45-km shallow and flat lying, mineralised unconformity unit having been effectively drill tested.
